Features on the Diamond have changed over the years

Editor's note: This is the sixth in a series of articles from a presentation recently given by local historian Ray Beimel on the history of the Diamond. --The appearance of the Diamond has changed several times over the years, going from privately owned land housing businesses to its present state owned by the City. 
While the Diamond now contains Christmas trees, at one time there was a fountain and Civil War cannon and cannonballs.
